Maritime tradefair SMM goes digital
As originally expected, the SMM Maritime Trade Fair will no longer be held as a hybrid event on the Hamburg exhibition campus in February 2021.
In Germany, soaring Covid-19 infection numbers now mean that Hamburg Messe und Congress, SMM Digital-The Maritime Business Hub, is instead organizing the 29th edition as a solely digital event for the maritime community.
Exhibitors and clients from all over the world will be able to address maritime issues online and digitally participate in conferences.
“After close consultations with the exhibition committee and government institutions, we have decided to host SMM 2021 as a purely digital event. The progress of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting restrictions have rendered it impossible to come up with a reliable plan for a physical tradefair,” stated Bernd Aufderheide, president and CEO of Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH.
SMM Digital will welcome its guests all digitally from 2-5 February 2021.
